One Conference 2021
The annual international cybersecurity conference "One Conference" will take place this year on Tuesday 28 and Wednesday 29 September 2021 in the Netherlands.
During the conference, national and international experts from the business community, science and government talk about current developments in the field of cyber security. From technical to policy issues, the conference offers a broad range of topic. Moreover, it not only focuses on mere cyber security, but also on the economic opportunities offered by the cyber domain.
The conference is organized in cooperation between the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy, the National Cyber Security Centre and the Municipality in The Hague. In alignment with the One Conference, the city aims to stimulate the exchange of cyber security knowledge, ideas and innovations for a more secure future. ECP, Platform for the Information Society offers support in the logistical organization of the conference.
Normally, this is a two-day conference and consists of a plenary programme, various breakout sessions and an Innovation Floor. Technical topics such as malware detection, incident response, law enforcement cases and less technical subjects, such as public-private partnerships or governance, are discussed. Attention is also given to research from industry and academia. Given the uncertainty involved in organizing large events, the One Conference team is keeping all scenarios open as to the format of this year's conference. We are considering a hybrid format that includes online streaming and on-site sessions with a live audience, within all limits of what can be allowed. More information on the format will be announced at a later date.

The inaugural GFCE Southeast Asia Regional Meeting 2021 will bring together the GFCE community and ASEAN stakeholders to identify opportunities and challenges for cyber capacity-building in the region and share good practices and knowledge. The session will discuss the cyber capacity-building landscape in Southeast Asia as well as collaborative opportunities to enhance coordinated capacity-building efforts in the region.
This is a hybrid event, with both in-person and virtual speakers and audience. Online access to this event is provided through registration on the SICW Virtual Platform.
Singapore International Cyber Week (SICW) 2021
The sixth edition of SICW will take place from 4 to 8 October 2021, under the theme of “Living with COVID19 – Reimagining digital security risks and opportunities”. COVID-19 has accelerated digitalisation and resulted in a growing dependence on technology, but this has also increased our exposure to cyber attacks. While a handful of countries have started on the bumpy road to recovery, most are experiencing a resurgence in infections. Living with COVID-19 will be a prolonged reality that the global community has to come to terms with. As private and public stakeholders reposition themselves or recalibrate policies to promote digitalisation, what are the digital and cyber risks involved and how should we manage them? Amidst these risks, what are the new digital opportunities that did not exist pre-COVID-19? How can countries and organisations leverage these opportunities? These and many other questions will be tackled at SICW 2021.
Alongside the shift of business meetings towards a hybrid model, CSA will be organising SICW 2021 as a combination of inter-linked physical and virtual meetings that will allow key leaders from governments, industry, academia and non-government organisations to explore the future of cyberspace cooperation from a broader range of perspectives.

Cyber 9/12 Strategy Challenge for South Africa
Atlantic Council and the Cybersecurity Capacity Centre for Southern Africa (C3SA) at the University of Cape Town, are partnering to host the inaugural Cyber 9/12 Strategy Challenge in South Africa. The Cyber 9/12 Challenge for South Africa is designed to offer students enrolled in tertiary education programmes across a wide range of academic disciplines in South African universities, a better understanding of the policy challenges associated with cybercrime and/or cyber operations. Part interactive learning experience and part competitive scenario exercise, the Cyber 9/12 Strategy Challenge for South Africa gives students interested in understanding and learning how to tackle and respond to cybercrime and/or to cyber operations, from a technical, policy, and legal angles an opportunity to interact with expert international, regional, and national mentors, judges, and cyber professionals while developing valuable skills in policy analysis and presentation.
Student teams will be challenged to respond to an evolving scenario involving a major cyber-attack and analyse the threat it poses to state, military, and private sector interests. Teams will be judged based on the quality of their policy responses, their decision-making processes, and their oral presentation to a panel of judges. Along the way, teams will work with coaches at their home institution to develop their policy skills and feedback from expert panels of judges will ensure that all participants have an opportunity to improve their skills, as well as networking opportunities during the competition.
